El Centro, California

November 30, 2016

This past weekend I traveled into the desert of California to do events in a little town called El Centro. It was so encouraging to see people decide to follow Jesus after our skate contest outreach; and then to see them come to Church the next morning and get plugged into a local body of believers was amazing! Grateful to work with Churches around the world to reach their community with the message of Jesus!el centro christ community church california board slide

Scotland

September 2, 2016

I have been blessed to get to travel to so many amazing and beautiful places, and God constantly reminds me of His brilliance and majesty in the sight of His creation. I got to spend a week in Scotland touring the country and telling people about Jesus, and God truly blessed the time I spent there and the relationships that I made. Thanks to Creation Festival for bringing me out and can’t wait to visit again in the future!

Messages for Jacob

August 15, 2016

I met Jacob on a recent trip to Texas to run a skate camp. I needed help instructing the campers, so I begged Jacob to show up the next morning and help me teach. I didn’t know anything about him, wasn’t aware of the hardships he was dealing with; I just saw a young gifted skateboarder that loved Jesus and worked well with the kids.

I was watching him skate the mini ramp outside of the park, and the combination of his style and the surrounding just looked so photogenic, so I grabbed my camera and tried my best to capture that moment; no finished product in mind, and really no intention behind any of the clips. Later that day his Grandmother came to pick him up, and never meeting me before she walks up to me weeping and hugs me, thanking me for what I did for Jacob. I was confused thinking “I should be thanking Jacob for coming to the camp and helping me”, until she explained that Jacob’s mom passed away three days ago.

How can someone suffering a massive loss give so much of themselves for others, and how can someone in the midst of their mourning bring joy to the people around them? I was inspired by Jacob’s strength, and knew that I wanted to do something for him. When I got home I contacted a bunch of Jacobs friends and people that love him, and asked them to leave encouraging messages for Jacob on my voicemail so I could give them to him. I wanted to make a video that would encourage him half as much as he encouraged me, and I want him to know that we love him and are praying for him.
